The adults-only August 2009 issue of True Tales: An Erotic E-zine of Masculinity and Power features recommendations of new gay fiction, nonfiction, and art in the Leathermen section. (And no, we haven't forgotten about the promised Prisoners issue. It's been bumped up to next year.)

Summary of the issue )

Those of you who read my editorial in True Tales this month may be interested in the latest news on the Galveston County Jail prisoners, who were not evacuated during the mandatory evacuation of the island.

Galveston Jail's sheriff paints a rosy picture.

Galveston Jail's architect paints a less rosy picture.

A Galveston judge offers a bit of hope for the future of the prisoners.

"The good Lord took care of those 1,050 inmates."

The cynical (but quite reasonable) comment of various bloggers is, "And thank goodness He did, because the sheriff sure didn't."

I'm working on a story for my Hurricanes Gustav and Ike Report at True Tales about how Hurricane Ike has affected the slash and yaoi communities. Anyone here want to contribute their anecdotes, for the record?

Why I never want to cover news in the slash community )

There must be something seriously wrong with my brain. Here I am, listening to hurricane statistics on danger, damage, and death, and all I can think is, "I wonder whether there's any hurricane erotica out there?"

The September 2008 issue of True Tales is devoted to Hurricanes Gustav and Ike (adults only). You can read an editorial on the Galveston County prisoners, peruse an essay by Daddy James that was written on the eve of Hurricane Ike, and view bittersweet erotic art by Michel Giliberti.

Plus, hurricane porn.

"Gustav sounds like black leather, whips and cuffs."

As some of you may have heard, Tropical Storm Gustav may soon return to hurricane status. According to the National Hurricane Center, one of its possible goals is New Orleans, a major location for leather and BDSM clubs. A report posted on the Leather Titleholders list from a local leatherman indicates that the city is busy in preparations for a possible landfall by Gustav.

The latest news is that, since Gustav isn't scheduled to reach the U.S. this weekend, the New Orleans gay festival Southern Decadence is still scheduled. If New Orleans is badly affected by the storm, True Tales will do its best to keep readers informed, as it did three years ago through its Hurricane Katrina Report.

Two good sources of New Orleans news: NOLA.com and WWLTV.com.

The August 2008 issue of True Tales: An Erotic E-zine of Masculinity and Power links to texts, photography, and a video in tribute to Larry Townsend, late author of The Leatherman's Handbook. The issue includes links to interviews by Jack Rinella and Bob Wingate, as well as writings by Larry Townsend, Thomas Roche, Jack Fritscher, and others.

For adults only.

Links on the Military Men page have been added to stories by Ranger, Parhelion, and Marquesate that are set around the conflicts in World War One, World War Two, and the modern British army.

Links on the Leathermen page have been added to bondage art that is an exercise in minimalism, an article about a bottom-man's efforts to overcome a phobia, and a video about power play that starts in a leather bar.

Next year's theme will be Prisoners and Prison Officers. (Yes, the 2008 theme has changed. There have been some good stories coming out in this category recently.) Please e-mail me if you have any suggestions for links to gay erotic and non-erotic narrative nonfiction, fiction, narrative poetry, drama, book excerpts, blog entries, art, photography, videos, and audio. The links can be to your own works or anyone else's. Suggestions for links to military and leather works continue to be welcome.

Some of the links below lead to sites with adults-only material.

A couple of awards-related pieces of news. First of all, the Titanium Whips Awards for BDSM fiction has announced that the 2006 winner in the original fiction category is Verdict, by Parhelion, which was originally published in the October 2005 issue of my gay e-zine True Tales.

Secondly, I've received word that True Tales has been nominated for this year's Cybersocket Web Awards, which "recognizes outstanding achievements in the world of queer online media and entertainment." True Tales was nominated in the Best Erotic E-zine category, alongside some other nominees that . . .

Um, distract me from finishing this post. For the links on that page alone, you might want to stop by the page where you can cast your votes in a variety of categories. Voting will close on December 31.

I still hope to get another issue out before the end of the year.
